It’s been about a month since the last time I projected the Red Sox lineup and with Opening Day less than a week away, let’s do it again.
Alex Cora has dropped plenty of nuggets about some of the options he’s considering from 1-9. Not to mention, a month of spring training games has helped paint the picture a bit as well. I’ll be the first one to raise my hand and say I’m excited about Triston Casas getting some leadoff opportunities.
But without revealing anything else, here’s my best guess at how the Red Sox will be filling out their lineup card on March 30th against the Orioles and Kyle Gibson.
FYI: All projections come from Steamer. Also, check out my Lineup Projection 1.0/2.0 from last month.
